with malaysia. they say it demonstrates involves more than a military hedge against china. guest: this is something the administration has been at pains to emphasize. the rebalance policy is not just about military forces. you look at the military muscle movements, they have been relatively minor. a few more global hops to guam and some things already in the works. we were already planning on shifting more assets to the pacific. agreemention trade referred to is called the transpacific partnership. this is a big deal in my opinion. this was hugely liberalized trade in the asia-pacific region. it would be a huge boost to the economies of the countries in the region and to the u.s. as well. perhaps most importantly to japan. japan has been in economic stasis for 20 years. the current prime minister is trying to restart the economy. being able to get this transpacific partnership would be a huge boost to japan. i would emphasize that is the most important u.s. ally in the region. host: walter on the democrats line. go ahead. caller: i'm curious about the base sale in california, the
